    Pros

    Great company to work for, with solid stable business, work/life balance and stability are high priorities for Sr. Management. Long average employee tenure speaks to these advantages.

    Cons

    Slow professional growth, not many opportunities for training (at the moment, even though this is temporary).

    Pros

    Opportunity - lots of promoting from within for those who are passionate about what they do and strive to be the best

    Cons

    Pay doesn't tend to be the highest. They are competitive, and when you factor in benefits, work life balance, etc, the pay is very good. However, if money is your main priority, you may be able to find places that will pay you more for the same job

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Has some good investment people

    Cons

    Invesco should subcontract out most of its back office operations because they won't be about to cut fees without that

    I worked at Invesco full-time

    Pros

    401k contribution match is really good

    Cons

    people have a bad habit calling out when short staffed, AM's come in late setting the example for the staff to do the same, makes it hard to be productive before lunch

    Advice to Management

    hold people accountable on when they are supposed to come into work, cut down on these month long vacation approvals that don't allow other people off, or jam up our reporting cycles because we are understaffed and people start calling out sick because they get burnt out. makes the situation worse
